dummie question about a heater

okay, I am moving my 125g tank ( putting in new floors ). I will be putting my three fish in a rubbermaid tub with liverock and a powerhead for about 3 or 4 days. I have a heater for the 125g. I can use it in the 20g tub right? For some reason I was thinking I was gonna have to buy a heater for a 20g. The big heater won't over heat the water. It regulates itself right? Oh and while I am at it what is the best way to clean sedament off the heater

I'd soak the heater in some vinegar so loosen up any gunk that has hardened on. Just rinse it well before returning it to the tank (or tub).
